Contact your school or center research administration office for the support of an institutionally designated VCU coverage analysis specialist. The timing for beginning the coverage analysis process may depend on your study sponsorship type.

In this case, a final coverage analysis is required at the time of award.

Additionally, the School of Medicine provides requisite coverage analysis services to schools/centers (fee-based).
